Tavern Troupe Concert, 5/25/2002, Daerlynn Concert Series II, Arthe Hollow Inn

As transcribed by Mykk Dalys

It has been 368 years, 357 days since the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer.
It is the 9th month of Dolefaren the Brigantine (ship) in the year of the Iron Toad.
It is currently winter and it is night.
You feel somewhat certain it's somewhere about the Anlas of Asketi's Hunt.

The starry skies above are marred by a few dark clouds.

People are beginning to drift in the general direction of Arthe Dale. One young woman pulls at her companion's sleeve. "Hurry up!" she hisses. "We want to get a good seat for the concert! The Arthe Hollow Inn is big, and I want to sit up front!" Her companion, a tall young Elf, chuckles, "We have a few minutes yet, dear," but he obligingly hurries his steps to match hers.

[Arthe Hollow Inn, Common Room]
The room is filled with jovial conversation, laughter, much toasting and a layer of smoky haze. Guests of all races mingle at the long, low tables. A Halfling holding a very large mug of beer jumps in front of the stone fireplace, lets out a whoop and bursts into a spontaneous song. Daisy Burdock, the inn's waitress, maneuvers adeptly through the crowd carrying a tray of mugs and occasionally glancing out the window. A menu is posted at the archway next to a prominent sign. You also see an open doorway, some wooden stairs, a polished wooden bar with some stuff on it, and a wooden menuboard.

Xanzie says, "this is "The Tavern Troupe Song""

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Come gather round. For a merry ole' song
         We are the Tavern Troupe 
     The tunes we shall sing you could never go wrong
         With Rayormy and Keia in group."

A chorus of voices join with Xanzie's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "So we'll sing you a song
     That could never go wrong
     We are the Tavern Troupe!
     We'll spin you a tale,
     So come fill us with ale.
     Come hear the Tavern Troupe!"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Austeria will tell you a smart funny tale
         Of exotic and daring new lands
     Oh, Quyba and Lemack will start to regale
         With Jaggonrazor leading the band!"

A chorus of voices join with Xanzie's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "Hear us sing 'cross the land
     Come join in our band!
     We are the Tavern Troupe!
     We'll spin you a tale,
     So come fill us with ale.
     Come hear the Tavern Troupe!"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Oh, Auriol starts out of a tart crusade. 
         As Galen dances by with his ale.
     Rhaury and Razzleberrie join in the parade
         While Inessa and Shenney sing a tale."

A chorus of voices join with Xanzie's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "We'll call for more tarts
     As we sing from our hearts
     We are the Tavern Troupe!
     We'll spin you a tale,
     So come fill us with ale.
     Come hear the Tavern Troupe!"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Our man, Derivan will pass out a new round
         Seraana lilt is so wonderous 
     Our security will keep you quieted down
         With Sharuul and Rufhelous"

A chorus of voices join with Xanzie's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "Oh, please quiet down
     For one more go 'round.
     We are the Tavern Troupe!
     We'll spin you a tale,
     So come fill us with ale.
     Come hear the Tavern Troupe!"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Ridelle and Michie will drive the men wild
         With Roxana and Xanzie nearby
     Niteshiver and Giona will show up in style
         And the women will swoon 'til they die"

A chorus of voices join with Xanzie's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "Yes, we'll drive the men wild
     When we show up in style!
     We are the Tavern Troupe!
     We'll spin you a tale,
     So come fill us with ale.
     Come hear the Tavern Troupe!"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Our Prydean ladies are all very classy
         And of course anyone can tell
     As pussycats go they're all very sassy
        Like Asera, Kelela and Lil' Belle!"

A chorus of voices join with Xanzie's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "Oh, we're bold and we're classy
     And pussycat sassy
     We are the Tavern Troupe!
     We'll spin you a tale,
     So come fill us with ale.
     Come hear the Tavern Troupe!"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Our show's coming through town
         Come on out!  But if you do, please watch it
     'Cause with Markhor or Korsik around
         You might get a S'Kra or Rakash in your pocket"

A chorus of voices join with Xanzie's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "Oh we're coming through town
     With S'Kra Mur all around!
     We are the Tavern Troupe!
     We'll spin you a tale,
     So come fill us with ale.
     Come hear the Tavern Troupe!"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Linthendale in his hat and jester outfit
         With Jaebom will dance about like a clown
     Lovely Dulcinie and Draciana will surely admit
         They look so charming and coy in their gowns"

A chorus of voices join with Xanzie's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "We'll dance 'bout like clowns
     And look coy in our gowns
     We are the Tavern Troupe!
     We'll spin you a tale,
     So come fill us with ale.
     Come hear the Tavern Troupe!"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Gossford and Morderac are getting down
         To a beat on Sammkit's furry feet
     And Roboson's got a groovy sound
         That nobody else can beat"

A chorus of voices join with Xanzie's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "No one can beat
     Our big fuzzy feet
     We are the Tavern Troupe
     We'll spin you a tale,
     So come fill us with ale.
     Come hear the Tavern Troupe!"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "You may think we're maddening
         When Ysselt is playing her lute
     Sircha's poem is so saddening
         Oh, Retalq is always such a hoot."

A chorus of voices join with Xanzie's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "We're all such a hoot.
     And we're all mad to boot!
     We are the Tavern Troupe!
     We'll spin you a tale,
     So come fill us with ale.
     Come hear the Tavern Troupe!"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Bubbinster will lead us all down to the bar.
         Yes, our favorite, drunk fool will be buying!
     And Zascha will dance, and Espritia will play
         Oh, rejoice in the ales we'll be trying!"

A chorus of voices join with Xanzie's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "Oh, the ole' fool will be buying
     And we 'll all be quite trying.
     We are the Tavern Troupe!
     We'll spin you a tale,
     So come fill us with ale.
     Come hear the Tavern Troupe!"

Xanzie bows.



Austeria smiles and waves to the crowd as she takes the forefront of the stage.
Austeria gets a silverwillow mandolin from inside her instrument case.
Austeria exclaims, "Sure and top o' the evenin' to all ye laddies and lassies!"
Austeria says, "I thought a good way to open the show would be with a simple tribute to the joy of music and dance."

Austeria says, "The song be 'We Danced Anyway,' by Dheannya Carteral."

Austeria begins to play a sprightly dancing tune upon her mandolin. Laughing notes float in the air and weave into an infectious mood of light-heartedness.

Austeria sings in an alto voice:

    "Shard air were heavy and sweet,
     Ye and I on a crowded street,
     There were music in the air...
     Sure and I can see us there...."

Austeria sings in an alto voice:

    "In a happy little foreign town,
     Where the stars hung upside down,
     Half a world away...
     Far, far away..."

Austeria teasingly sings in an alto voice:

    "Ye remember...
     We were laughing...
     We were so in love--
     We were so in love!"

Austeria playfully sings in an alto voice:

    "And the band played-- songs that we had never heard,
     But we danced anyway-- we never understood the words!
     We just sang oh... la la la, la la la la, la-la--
     And we danced anyway!"

Austeria returns to the beginning of the sprightly tune through a series of transitional notes and begins to step lightly through the steps of a playful dance; her body swaying and twirling as her feet prance lightly about the floor. The mood becomes more infectious and it is easy to forget oneself and begin tapping toes.

Austeria sings in an alto voice:

    "They say ye can't go back,
     Well baby I don't believe that...
     Come along with me...
     Come on and dance with me..."

Austeria sings in an alto voice:

    "Maybe if ye hold me close,
     Baby we can just let go
     Of these things that tie us down...
     Sure and we'll come back around!"

Austeria teasingly sings in an alto voice:

    "Ye remember-- we were laughing!
     We were so in love--
     We were so in love!"

Austeria playfully sings in an alto voice:

    "And the band played-- songs that we had never heard,
     But we danced anyway-- we never understood the words!
     We just sang oh... la la la, la la la la, la-la--
     And we danced anyway!"

Austeria continues her light-hearted dance as she plays her mandolin. While following the steps of her feet is easy, copying the whole dance seems far more difficult unless one can feel what she is feeling from the song.

Austeria teasingly sings in an alto voice:

    "Ye remember-- we were laughing!
     We were so in love--
     We were so in love!"

Austeria playfully sings in an alto voice:

    "And the band played-- songs that we had never heard,
     But we danced anyway-- we never understood the words!
     We just sang oh... la la la, la la la la, la-la--
     And we danced anyway!"

Austeria wistfully sings in an alto voice:

    "Ohhh-ohhh... and we danced anyway!"

Austeria twirls around gracefully as she returns to the same spot she was standing in when she started her dance; her tune shortening into an abbreviated few scales that repeat twice and then slowly fade away.

Austeria smiles and bows with a grand flourish!



Niteshiver says, "this song ha ssome wierd pauses so it is over when i bow"
Niteshiver grins.

Niteshiver sings in a bass voice:

    "Dawnlight
      The smashing of the sea on the Autumn rocks
      lover's bite
      The passion of an ocean for the change it mocks"

Niteshiver sings in a bass voice:

    "I was walking in the morning in thy neighborhood
      I'd been out putting in appearences where I never should
       Your mother always told you I was up to no good
      Well she's right
      I'm a bard in a bard's universe
      so i always put the muse and my loving first"

Niteshiver sings in a bass voice:

    "I canna fight what you hear about where I've been
      Dancing till the morning with the Witches' children
      Climbing in the cave to see the mystic lights
      to hear the astral sounds of the Goddesses delight
      when she lifts her breast to her lover what a wondrous sight!"

Niteshiver sings in a bass voice:

    "I'm bard to the bone
      I'm a bastard of the night
      I'm the careening course of an eagle in flight
      I can take you to within an inch of where ye wanted to go
      In the valley of Dreams where the sapphire winds blow
      Bard to the Bone
      Bard to the Bone"

Niteshiver sings in a bass voice:

    "This is a bard's world!!!!!
       This is a Bard's World
       Every flavor, every scent
      Every sensual touch
      Every garment that ye fling off is not quite enough
      Every taste of eternity from the samatak plant
      every melody I toss off to see ye dance"

Niteshiver sings in a bass voice:

    "When you feel a certain shadow
      and it touches your skin
      When it tastes thy breath
      and makes thy head spin
      When ye cannot dance hard and heated enough
      it's a bards world
      a bard's life
      a bard's love
      its suave and its rough"

Niteshiver says, "When ye want it to be"
Niteshiver grins.

Niteshiver sings in a bass voice:

    "I'm bard to the bone
      I'm a bastard of the night
      I'm the careening course of an eagle in flight
      I can take ye to within an inch of where ye wanted to go
      In the valley of Dreams where the sapphire winds blow
      Bard to the Bone
      Bard to the Bone"

(Niteshiver comes up to you, catches your eye, smiles enigmatically, ignores ye if ye are male winking at the same time, smells thy perfume, notices the color in thy cheek, almost leans in to kiss you and reluctantly dances off)

Niteshiver sings in a bass voice:

    "Bard to the Bone.....
      Bard to the Bone
         Bard to the bone"

Niteshiver bows.



Xanzie says, "Hello I'm Xanzie.. most people know me as "That Darn Blonde"."
Xanzie rolls her eyes.
Xanzie says, "don't know why"
Xanzie shrugs.
Xanzie says, "I had an unusual friend once, who refused to get favors...."
Xanzie ponders.
Xanzie says, "needless to say, he's no longer with us... but this song is for him."
Xanzie frowns.

Xanzie says, "This is "The Story of the Danger Ranger""

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "There was once a day, not too long ago
     In the marshes in east Riverhaven
     When a charming young ranger took his daily leg stretching
     And thought what a wonderful day he was having"

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "He heard a quick noise and he turned with a start
     And before him in all his her great power.
     Was the spirit of death and the dark somber face
     Of the wondrous and tempestuous Eylhaar"

Xanzie darkly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""How now," came her voice ringing clear in his head
     "Have you come to my woods this afternoon"
     "With out appeasing me first at the altar of the Gods"
     "And offering your sacrificial orb for my boon.""

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Now the ranger was not so much a god-fearing man
     But the vision of Her was astounding.
     He collected his wits and stood his ground
     Even though her breathe in his head was resounding."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""Oh wondrous Dark Lady," he began with a quiver.
     "I have heard of your merciful heart"
     "For the fools and the children that walk on this world."
     "Of which I am firmly a part.""

As Xanzie strums her flamewood fiddle, a slow ballad glides through the air with a clear, harmonious tone.

Xanzie darkly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""You fool," she responded, "You are not a part,"
     "Of this world if you haven't a clue."
     "My mercy is only for those with my favor"
     "And you haven't even a few.""

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""So now go from this place, to the old cemetery"
     "And see what becomes of the lost."
     "And there seek my boon for my favor you must."
     "Before you suffer the horrible cost.""

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "And with this the Dark Lady disappeared from his sight
     And left him on this bright sunny noon.
     And he walked the cemetery nearby, and thought
     "This is not how I want to spend my afternoon""

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "So despite all her warnings, he crept back in
     To the marshes where the trolls and sluaghs dwell.
     And began to fight monsters and do heroic things
     And save all the lovely maidens in the dell"

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Then from the edge of his view came a troll with a pike
     He couldn't evade or step to the side
     He looked and imposed on the troll's jeering face
     Was the Dark Lady with her dark shining eyes."

Xanzie darkly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""You didn't heed my warning and seek ye my favor."
     "Now to me, your soul becomes lost."
     "See now what happens with your life blood desolving."
     "Now you suffer the horrible cost.""

With a subtle, powerful style, Xanzie strums a slow ballad weaving a melancholy tone that saddens the soul.

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "The ranger wept as his life slipped away
     The Dark Lady laughed as she faded from view
     Then he heard Aldauth, laugh in her place
     And his god-fearing was throughly renewed."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "After his death, he heard a new voice in his head.
     As the prayers from the living off in the distance and dim.
     He felt life's stirring grip and he inhaled a great breath
     And looked to see what angel had saved him."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "He could barely remember as she told him his loss
     And the sacrifice she made as the raiser.
     To appease the gods, he'd lost all his knowledge
     And she had lost her own favor"

With a subtle, powerful style, Xanzie strums a slow ballad weaving a melancholy tone that saddens the soul.

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "As he looked on this young cleric, the Dark Lady appeared
     And she shed one tear that fell soft as the rain.
     "Her loss was for you, foolish ranger boy."
     "Do not make her loss one in vain.""
 
Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""So now go from this place, to the old cemetery"
     "Now that you know of the cost."
     "And there seek my boon for my favor you must."
     "And no more shall you suffer the loss.""

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Oh, the ranger smiled and kissed the cleric's soft face
     As he embraced the Dark Lady's waver.
     He went on to the place, in the old cemetary
     And he filled up on her beautiful Favor"

Weaving a melancholy tone that saddens the soul, a slow ballad glides from Xanzie's flamewood fiddle.
Xanzie smiles.
Xanzie finishes playing on her flamewood fiddle.
Xanzie bows.



Sammkit exclaims, "Heyo ev'rbody, I'm Sammkit. I don't talk too much, so I'll just sing for ya!"

Sammkit recites:

"Here's a little song I wrote after a recent huntin' expedition. It wasn't too successful, as ya will see. Bards, sing along!"

A chorus of voices join with Sammkit's leading countertenor as he sings:

    "Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, Two critters,
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, Three critters,
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, And I'm the o-nly hun-ter.
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, They like it
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, I like it
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, It's lots of fun!"

Sammkit playfully sings in a countertenor voice:

    "I slice 'em, I jab 'em, I kick and I brawl!
     Fighting three critters ain't nuthin' at all!
     I pound 'em, I bash 'em, I elbow and then,
     I slice 'em, an' jab 'em and start over again!"

A chorus of voices join with Sammkit's leading countertenor as he sings:

    "Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, Four critters,
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, Five critters,
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, And I'm the o-nly hun-ter.
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, They like it
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, I'm not sure I like it
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, This ain't much fun!"

Sammkit excitedly sings in a countertenor voice:

    "I parry, I dodge 'em, I swing and jump back.
     I evade, an' swing, and don't show 'em my back.
     I slice to the front, and I jab to the side,
     I just hope that those critter's attacks will be wide!"

A chorus of voices join with Sammkit's leading countertenor as he sings:

    "Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, Six critters,
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, Seven critters,
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, And I'm the o-nly hun-ter.
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, They really like it
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, I really hate it
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, I'd better run!"

Sammkit painfully sings in a countertenor voice:

    "I retreat, and retreat and retreat and then,
     I retreat, and retreat, and retreat again.
     I get hit by the critters on every side,
     If I'm lucky today I'll get away and not die!"

A chorus of voices join with Sammkit's leading countertenor as he sings:

    "Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, So many critters,
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, Oh so many critters,
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, And I'm the o-nly hun-ter.
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, They love it
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, I escaped to sing of it
     Twiddle Dee Diddle Dee Dee, It wasn't such fun!"

Sammkit strikes a heroic pose.
Sammkit bows.
Sammkit says, "thank ya all"



Espritia says, "Well... I'm Espritia, and normally I wouldn't bring y'all down after a performance like that, but I do like to debut my new songs at these concerts."
Espritia says, "So I have a new one for y'all tonight, and it's a sad one. I've called it, "If Wishes Came True.""

Espritia sadly sings in an alto voice:

    "If wishes came true
